Bottom line is, IMO, except for a few, our offensive players are just average to way below average ball players.
I think Kc was referring to the Reds BA w/RISP and two outs. It's third worst in the NL and dropping fast. Even Joey has struggled bigtime in those situations. I believe he's hitting under .150 now. It's definitely been an issue for this team.
